DJ Cleo is now studying bachelor of business management at Wits University. His real name is Tlou Monyepao in 1979, and his stage name is DJ Cleo. He was discovered years back by popular comedian Ashifa Shabba, and he started off by working at YFM station. 

After so many years of hosting Nyan’ Nyan with just a grade 12 certificate, Luyanda Potwana has now been admitted in 2021 by the University of London in England to study bachelor of science degree in psychology (BSc in Psychology).
